P.R., a producer from Sydney, brings us a diverse range of refreshing beats. He is gaining recognition for his musical composition on a global scale, having collaborated with artists from around the world. His most recent solo EP, Moment in Time was via Cult Classic Records, based in the UK.
The stems of his latest track release, ‘Next Destination ft. Awon’, come from this EP. The already delicious sixth track is combined with the slick flow of New York based MC, Awon.
“The flamboyant brass and subtle Latina vocal samples give the track a jazzy flavour, complementing the rhythm of Awon’s poetry.”
Since its release, 16 days ago, ‘Next Destination’ has gone seemingly viral. Already having been ‘liked’ by over 2000 SoundCloud followers, this beatstrumental is melodic and soulful. Additionally Awon’s lyrical content marks a newfound precision for the Australian. The opening of the track is a gentle filtered crescendo, reminiscent of that distinctive quality of audio you would hear from a distant passer by listening to their iPod on full blast. In conjunction with Awon’s opening line, the mood of the beat becomes choppy and playful. P.R effortlessly manipulates his original beat to suit the dynamic of Awon’s flow and the song becomes, well, something else. The flamboyant brass and subtle Latina vocal samples give the track a jazzy flavour, complementing the rhythm of Awon’s poetry. Already successfully reaching the ears of enthused hip hop heads; this track marks the beginning of many more neck snapping tracks to come.
